Reinforcing student health and learning in multiple settings—at home, in school, in out-of-school programs, and in the community – is a continuous act across a child’s life and requires an ongoing commitment as children mature into young adulthood. The Alliance for a Healthier Generation and the SC Department of Education recognize this commitment and are providing communities and educators with tools to help families prioritize healthy living and create thriving home environments. Find out why you should take advantage of free tools and resources so the healthy choice is the easiest choice for your students and their families.
The WSCC model is the CDC’s framework for addressing health in schools. It is a student-centered model and emphasizes the role of the community in supporting the school, the connections between health and academic achievement and the importance of evidence-based school policies and practices. This webinar addresses one component of the WSCC model:
Family Engagement: Families and school staff work together to support and improve the learning, development, and health of students. Family engagement with schools is a shared responsibility of both school staff and families. School staff are committed to making families feel welcomed, engaging families in a variety of meaningful ways, and sustaining family engagement. Families are committed to actively supporting their child’s learning and development. This relationship between school staff and families cuts across and reinforces student health and learning in multiple settings—at home, in school, in out-of-school programs, and in the community. Family engagement should be continuous across a child’s life and requires an ongoing commitment as children mature into young adulthood.
